Rag Radio 2011-10-28 / Singer/Songwriter & Community Activist Charlie Faye


Published October 28, 2011


Charlie Faye is a singer/songwriter and community activist based in Austin, TX. On January 1st, 2010, Faye, embarked on a modern bohemian adventure. In 10 months, Charlie made her home in 10 different towns: Tucson, Los Angeles, Portland, Boulder, CO, Shreveport, LA, Burlington, VT, Milwaukee, Nashville, Asheville, NC, and New York City. Traveling alone, Charlie put together a new band in each town and wrote and recorded a new song with local musicians each month. Her 10-town-made Travels with Charlie record represents a real cross-section of our national roots-based, Americana music scene.

Charlie also has become one of Austin's most recognized music community organizers. A front-page story in the Austin American-Statesman outlined her efforts to save a musicians' enclave of cottages in South Austin. Charlie's history also includes touring as a sideman with Dan Zanes and Greg Garing, as well as playing alongside many others, including Natalie Merchant, Bettysoo, and Will Sexton. On the show, we discuss her accomplishments and her adventures, and she performs live.

Host and Producer: Thorne Dreyer; Engineer and Co-Producer, Tracey Schulz.
